More gracefully than I perhaps.
I don't know about that. I think I do alright mostly when on my own, but in social situations my graces often abandon me. I blame other people.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

three very enjoyable and exhausting years. Where did stay? That would have been a great time to live and surf around the bukit. Even 10 years ago it was pretty quiet around ulus. There was only a handful of places to eat and hardly any nightlife, now development is exploding. Banksy got his 25year ...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Big Balangan was my favourite when I lived in Bali 20 years ago. Left a little skin off my back and legs on the reef trying to get barrelled on the end section too. Have you been watching those "Surfers of Bali" videos on YouTube, Beanpole?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Man it got GOOD this arvo. All the shit went out of the swell, it straightened up a bit from the east and the wind went SW. I checked it at 1pm and couldn't believe it, perfect 6-8' surf and nobody out. So, well, I went out. The tide slowly slid away and a little bit of the swell with it but still ...
